New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, historically one of President Donald Trump’s biggest supporters, took to national television Wednesday to share his disappointments with the president.

“What’s your biggest disappointment in Donald Trump?” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough asked Christie during a “Morning Joe” interview. “We haven’t gotten things done, Joe. I mean, we’re sitting here seven months in and we haven’t put touchdowns in the end zone,” Christie responded. “The only real touchdown that we put in the end zone is Justice Gorsuch.”

Christie continued speaking about the goals that Republicans have failed to pass while in full control of the House, Senate, and the White House.

“Besides that, the big things that we’ve been talking about as Republicans for eight years, Obamacare, things like tax reform, you know, are things that should be done with a Republican Congress and a Republican president, and we’ve been distracted by other things,” Christie said.


When asked what his biggest mistake has been while in office, the governor responded, “Hiring the people who pulled the shenanigans at the bridge. That was my biggest mistake,” referencing the 2015 “Bridgegate” scandal. During this time, lanes on the George Washington Bridge were closed for four days in order to exact political revenge against Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, a Democrat that refused to endorse Christie’s re-election campaign.

The New Jersey governor, who was re-elected to a second term in 2013, is term-limited and cannot run for a third consecutive term. There has been no word on Christie’s future plans after he leaves office.
